They are early, the red-winged blackbirds. Hubby spotted them just as he was on his way out the door to dispatch and deliver Meals on Wheels. Good eye! He spotted several of the hawks on our Wolfe Isl. trip, as they seemed to favour his side of the road!
There are the robins, eating up the sumac berries. I don't think they actually left the region for the winter.
